I am a parent of a student attending Loudonville Christian School and Leader of their first LEGO Club for 4th, 5th and 6th graders. We meet once a month and I would love to talk to you. The Elm Street creation is fantastic. Please email me at your earliest convenience. Thank you.
Wonderful work! I instantly recognized that as Elm St. A friend used to live there in the 1990s. Her building is (was) one in your photo.
Any plans to put the do the grocery store across the street? Joking, of course. The Capitol would be a nice challenge, or the D & H RR building on Broadway. One of the layered designs where you can remove the floors and look inside would be extraordinary for the Capitol, and most challenging.
I enjoyed your rendition of the Elm Street houses. In the 70's we restored 210 Elm Street and received a Preservation award from Albany
Historic Assoc. We (Elm Street Assoc.)even had a logo sticker and letterhead. These were the creative,passionatedays of historic preservation and community development. It was a lot of fun. Nick Aliotti
Paul Grondahl here. I'm a reporter for the Albany Times Union and know your brother, Peter, and your mom. Do you live in Albany? I thought your Elm Street Lego creation might make a fun feature story. Could you e-mail me at the paper? Thanks, Paul
Thanks for the complements! It took quite a few months to build, but that was mostly collecting the bricks on Bricklink. Each house is built to the same model, so once the design was complete, it could be easily replicated. Obviously, I stole quite a bit of the design from the Greengrocer :-)
